Lazy People In The Workforce

They make it worse for everyone.

Lazy People In The Workforce

Someone I admire once said, "In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun." I don't know about you but a job is a job, it can be fun and it can DEFINITELY NOT be fun. However, the majority of the time the people you work with will decipher the truthfulness behind that statement.

In every job you do, there will be slackers, over-achievers, people who do the minimum amount of work required, and those who are just plain lazy. There's a difference, I'd like to make, between slackers and lazy people. Although slackers aren't necessarily good, they usually get it done eventually, maybe holding other people back but do finish. However, lazy people will get in the way, do usually less than the minimum, complain about the work they do have to do and usually don't even finish and/or is incomplete.

Well, here's a news flash for all you lazy people, although I'm sure you know, you make the life of the person who is picking up your slack 10 times harder by not putting in the effort you're paid to do. The person next to you could be working to support their family and pay bills and may or may not even be being paid enough. Think about that? Every person you work with is dealing with something and just by not putting in your effort, you're making their life even harder, congratulations.

The sad reality to this touchy subject is every workforce honestly needs a lazy person to kind of put the stress of the blame on and that's pretty pathetic. It balances the workplace out. Although it gives you someone to lay blame on, it still doesn't change the fact that there will always be work that's not done. Lazy people need to start getting to work and doing their part. Lazy people sit and watch as others bust their butts running in circles around them and if embarrassment isn't enough to make them want to pick up their slack, nothing probably will.

So, if you're one of those lazy people who sit and watch and don't want to lift a finger, maybe you'll think twice about not doing something and actually START doing something. You affect the progress of those around you.

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
